    I just bought a beater 2005 Forester and it ran fine on the highway for 3 trips of around 50 miles. The problem is when I sit in stop and go traffic I get a trans temp warning, check eng.

    Fluid is up to full on the warm marks. What is the correct path? Scan codes or drain and replace filters and screens?

    Is there a FAQ for this?

    Thanks!

    So this is odd. 2005 Forester dosen't seem to respond to the transmission 1,2,1,2,3,D or the head light trip odo trick.

    Thoughts?

    So the codes are:
    P0700 Transmision control system malfunction
    P0700 Possible Causes Shorted or open circuit within Transmission Control Module (TCM) Faulty Transmission Control Module (TCM)

    P0733 Gear 3 Incorrect Ratio
    P0733 Possible Causes Low transmission fluid level Dirty transmission fluid Shift solenoids Transmission mechanical problems Transmission hydraulic control circuit
    P0734 Gear 4 Incorrect Ratio
    P0734 Possible Causes Low transmission fluid level Dirty transmission fluid Shift solenoids Transmission mechanical problems Transmission hydraulic control Circut


    It seems to drive fine so I guess I'll start with transmission fluid and screen / filter...

    Any thoughts? It is strange that I'm not seeing anything about temperature??
